MK: back on the wagon... again...

A few months ago, I wrote here in Twitloss that I was ready to start again. And I am. I try to eat right, but I lack the motivation to work out. I don't have a workout buddy anymore, I don't have the money to go to a gym, and my elliptical is sitting in the corner getting a fine layer of dust on it because I can't find the cord to plug it in and change the levels. And, let's face it: because I'm lazy.
 My mom bought me a workout video a long time ago (like, YEARS ago) and made me promise that I'd do it. Of course, I told her I would but I threw it in a drawer and promptly forgot about it. This was when I'd just separated from my first husband and I was super depressed and I didn't care much about anything at that time. I did manage to get up off my butt and drop some weight (when I first started here at Twitloss) but I plateaued, got depressed, got overwhelmed, blahblahexcusesblahblah. 
I will say that I didn't start the day off with great food choices. I skipped breakfast and had spaghetti with meat sauce for lunch... and a caramel brownie for a snack. But I'm chugging water and am determined to drink my allotted 64 ounces today (my medication requires at LEAST that much).
Today, I found the copy of Turbo Jam by Team Beachbody. Since the laundry is still going, I put on my tennis shoes, popped in the DVD, and got to it. The workouts are 20 minutes and incorporate dancing and martial arts. And best of all: IT'S FUN. I'm sitting here dripping with sweat and wondering if I could get away with doing it again. I'm still recovering from my bout with the flu, so I've probably already pushed my limit for the day, but... since it's such a nice day out I think I'm going to go for a walk. With my iPod. And see what happens. I can't run because of my knees, but maybe a powerwalk is in the cards? 

All I know is that I need the Vitamin D, the sunshine, and most of all: THE EXERCISE!!
